    Which statement best compares the maximum value of the two functions? It is equal for both functions. It is 2 units higher for f(x) than g(x). It is 2 units lower for f(x) than g(x). It is 1 unit higher for f(x) than g(x).

    ok, so let's just look at f(x) for now f(x) = -2x^2 + 3 what is the maximum value of f(x)?

    Okay.. sorry for the long response. Open Study isn't agreeing with me... as usual.

    aah geez. I can't remember how to do f(x) problems...

    hint: the maximum value of f(x) happens when x = 0 so, when x = 0, what is f(x)?

    Not there. I thought x = 1. So if x = o than... f(x) would just be... 0... I am sure I'm wrong about that lol. I have never been good at Algebra.

    f(x) = -2x^2 + 3 = -2(0) + 3 = ?

    right, so our maximum value of f(x) is 3 now take a look at g(x), what's the maximum value?

    Whats the equation? Is it still: f(x) = -2x2 + 3 only with g(x) in place of f(x)

    right, so the maximum value of g(x) is 3 so our final answer is...?
